Need a recommendation for a good beginner home brewing magazine. Beginner is the key word here. Something educational but something fun too. SWMBO is commenting on how it's taking me forever to read John Palmer's "How to Brew". I won't admit that I re-read chapters over and over for pleasure. Also she thinks I'm on facebook all day too. Too funny.

There's really only two magazines, BYO and Zymurgy.

+1 to Revvy. I'm more of a fan of BYO than Zymurgy. BYO is more helpful to the homebrewer wheras Zymurgy caters a lot to the industry/brewing brotherhood.

But they have little if any homebrewing information in it, right? The Op's looking for a homebrewing mag.

For beginner info, listen to some of the Basic Brewing Radio podcasts. SOme are more advanced but many are basic. You can learn a lot from them. I know you asked for readin material... just saying, this stuff is good.
